It is a Crinum--I don't know the genus well enough to say for sure if it's that particular species or not though.

Here is an image of C amoenum for comparison. It does seem to have the narrow leaves and red-tinged stamen common to C amoenum.

Thank you ecrane3 and themoonhowl! Your replies were greatly appreciated. Therefore it is a C amoenum. So it marked as close.
